No Nuclear Weapons are required to destroy or spread the fear of terrorism these days. The new modern technique more deadlier than weapons is this BIO-TERRORISM.

This is cause of concern for every nation to counter this type of attach. For this, only measure which can be applied is to know about those diseases which can be spread easily and then take precautions to control or be away from them.

Biological weapons are poor mans' weapons of mass destruction. These are made out of microorganisms that grow and infect the target hosts producing clinical disease that kills or incapacitates the target hosts. Most of the agents like bacteria, viruses or toxins that may be potentially used as biological weapons are listed. As seen from the list, the agents used are zoonotic in nature and have animal reservoirs. Veterinary expertises exist and inter professional exchange of skills between veterinary and medical scientists will be beneficial to the common man and the Government. Disease forecasting using sentinels, reporting by faster diagnostic technique, undertaking prompt treatment, implementing control measures and planning prevention constitute the veterinary public health measures.

Bioterrorism is the use of the biological agents to inflict disease and/or death in man, animals, or plants. Terrorists groups undertake this activity in a smaller or larger scale than the rival countries. Basically the agents used are the same as in biological warfare.

Biothreat is spreading a rumor or hoax about the presence of an agent in the society and create panic. This can be verified from the veterinary personnel working at different field stations and laboratories.

Between animal and human medicine there is no dividing rule nor there should be. The object is different, but the experience obtained constitutes the basis of all medicine.
